Can you imagine a large corporation discovers a $6 billion mistake. Heads would roll.

Only a rabid lefty would say that saving $60 billion is a stuff up. The left love free money where the taxpayers end up paying the bill.

Liberal stuff up = Australia saves $60 billion
Labor Stuff up =pink batts where peoples houses burnt down, cash for clinkers lol and billion dollar dodgy portables.

Libs saved us 60 billion Labor cost us billions in wacko schemes.


Its only a story for the left in society. It didnt even deserve page 8. They should have run it in the classifieds

Spot on ramps. Best money ever banked. One thing counts and that's the ALP are clutching at a straw no one cares about  :lol

Brilliant economic management from frydenburg. Saved Australia $60 billion. Now he should start cutting back the free money to people.

Would start with the double dipping of the dole to those bludgers pretending to be "job seekers" who don't deserve a cent. A great friend of mine laid off 2 girls because both wanted to be paid job keeper while staying at home and not working. He said I am opening 2 days per well, they wanted to bludge so he dumped them.

Whatever happens you can take great comfort in knowing we have a great set of hands managing our economy.

please.

did it cost lives and or money? No. Money left over is the way i read it so they will approve more applications now under the grants. The ALP who created scheme after scheme threw money down the drain and killed people. I know which one voters like more.

Another leftard angle from albo the dud, and before you go on a rant. That word is commonly referred to in Hong Kong and quoted here.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liberal_elite

Have to say your response is exactly what I was expecting. Obviously different rules for different fools

If this was Labour govt you'd be tearing them to shreds over this .... you know it.

So glad you think this is a good thing?  Millions of people missed out on this because they didn't qualify because the cost was so supposedly so great they had harsh restrictions on it who could get it.

"Costs lives" interesting question I don't think we know do we? Hasn't been any stats on possible suicides caused by people losing their livelihoods

Are you writing Treasurer Josh's scripts now.  In an interview yesterday when he was challenged on the $60 billion stuff up his response was "well if it was Labour..... " seriously why can't this pathetic treasurer take responsibility for his department stuffing up.

Bottom line is you can't have it both ways? But it seems depending on which side of politics you sit you can.

And I won't even mention  the hypocrisy of this government's presser 2 days ago about electric cars...

Millions did not miss out. You have no idea what you are talking about. You do realise you can still apply  :lol

It was only last week there were emails out saying sorry you missed out and now try again we have broadened the eligibility. Now understood that was the business support scheme (state) but if you can apply go for it. Simple.

If you won't apply then it's your own fault for relying on accountants where really the individual should read up yourself.  I don't have anyone who didn't get it after applying, and that includes full part time and casual workers and the self employed.

This is money saved and a witch-hunt by a party bereft of answers, and still tearing up after the unlosable election.

I was talking about the bungled pink batts scheme? You know that hair brained scheme which cost money not the other way around.

 If you want to talk about suicide how many have pulled the pin due to suicide or family violence with the extension of Conrad Andrews dictatorship lockup. We will never know but you count on it being more than covid. :shh

Well its a $60 billion saving because the money was going to be budgeted to be spent. The government
Should consider a national infrastructure program including fast rail on the eastern seaboard from melbourne to brisbane. That would be a great project for the nation. I congratulate the federal government
and Josh for not making the mistake of just forking out another 60 billion to the long term dole bludgers.

Millions are missing out. If you are worker from a foreign owned company you are not entitled to Job Keeper, even though you pay taxes. You are also aware that they have saod today that are under no circumstances going to widen the eligibility criteria or extend the program

Nice cheap shot at an accountant Frankie

Lucky you, I do. Know 3 people have been told they don't qualify including one who is a casual who has worked for the same company for 10 months.

Money saved? Outside of it not being an actual saving.

Not so fast....

You are aware that the government are thinking of using the money somewhere else but they are arguing amongst themselves as to what they should use it for.... So no savings just yet

Oh and one  more thing...even yourself ScoMo has admitred they stuffed up. If they didn't stuff up why has he just said the did?

Scotty from Marketing is at it again with his "new" JobMaker scheme.


A new idea? It is if you think a focus on trades and the TAFE sector is new.
